Overview

Facilitation and negotiation skills are central to a range of intervention approaches relevant to the practice of psychology and counselling. These include, but are not limited to, individual and group therapy, mediation, conflict management, teaching and training, psychoeducation, and the facilitation of learning. Consequently, some key areas of practice in psychology and counselling are contingent on sound knowledge of appropriate design frameworks and the capacity to utilise process skills effectively.

The course is divided into two parts. The first part concerns the theories and principles which underpin models of facilitation and negotiation. Topics include theories of learning, principles of process design, evaluation models applicable to facilitated processes, reflective practice, and facilitation microskills. The second aspect of the course focuses on application of theories and skill development in individual and group settings. Students are required to demonstrate process design, facilitation microskills, and process management, in a structured and supported group learning task.
